    That's good to know! I only new the move in date and lecture dates. Yeah people might find out at different times. I'm looking forward to freshers! Hope they have some good things planned for it

    Same! I know its not gonna be your average freshers due to the fact its a college, but i know they plan nights out to nantwich for the HE students, i think the FE and HE students do the same activities on site for freshers though

    You should definitely make a Facebook group - a group & thread was made for my group last year and it's brilliant! Really helps for meeting new people, asking advice, and posting interesting things throughout the year!

    Reaseheath do have a Freshers week (2 to be exact), but some of the activities do involve the FE students! RH Freshers is more of socials, bbqs, movie nights, whereas Chester is obviously going out to clubs etc! Chester don't provide transport for Freshers, but if you email them at student services they are happy to provide a mini bus if you give them a number of people I personally didn't go to Chester freshers, and everyone on the ABW will be at Reaseheath anyway, so I wouldn't say its any better for meeting/getting to know people, but I know its definitely a good time, but Reaseheath can be good too! They have socials every Thursday at RH, sometimes with a theme, which is really fun You do get the chance to go to the Chester Freshers Fair though, where you can sign up to clubs & societies - it's good to get free gifts and things, but there isn't much point in joining Chester societies as you're only there once a week for lectures! Reaseheath have a conservation society which is good for the course, but thats about it.

    Reaseheath accommodation is nice in Platt & Chetwood - I'd recommend Platt first though. The wifi and laundrettes have been a bit rubbish this year, but I'm 99% sure they're sorting them all for next year! Reaseheath is a really lovely campus, as you'll see on the open day if you go. The Student Village isn't amazing, its just tiny portacabins really, and is known as the 'party village' - I know people who love to party who really like student village, but I personally wouldn't like to live there. I didn't get campus accommodation when I started due to living on a bus route in fairly close proximity to the college, so I got off-campus accommodation. I actually left this and moved back home & just drove to Reaseheath when I needed to be in, because I really didn't like it, but it might work for you It's really only because no one from Reaseheath is ever in the off-campus accommodation - it's all Manchester MET students, often in their second and third year. A couple of my friends on the course both dislike their off campus accommodation, and most of my other friends actually live at home and have no regrets. In second year of course you'll know everyone and will be living in Chester, which is much better.

    You do see the FE students yes, but mostly if you don't live in. Living in you can eat and hang out in your room, but with not living in, you share the canteen with FE students! However, there is a HE centre just for us, which is much better as there's no FE. I've not felt like I'm at uni at all this year, but that's probably due to not living in, however it still has a really nice atmosphere. When you go to Chester once a week that definitely has more of a university atmosphere

    Hope this helps, if you have any more questions just ask!
    Thank you for posting this thread! I wanted to ask about the internet access, because in the accommodation booklet which came within my enrollment pack said that living in Platt and Chetwood would mean you have to pay extra for internet connection. I've emailed Reaseheath student services etc but never got a reply, so was wondering if you could advise? Many thanks again. And the facebook group would be a great idea x

    I did at BTEC level 3 course in animal managment
    And yes i did a gap year, i worked (as id never had a job before) and im getting ever closer to learning to drive as i recently passed my theory and hope to do my practical soon although i wont actually have a car during uni XD
    When i finished college i was so nervous and didnt have the confidence to go to uni but after working ect im a bit better so i thought id just go for it and i did ^_^

    Do you know what the accommodation looks like? Chetwood/Platt as ive been to reaseheath but didnt get to see any accommodation... im super curious.
    I've seen the accommodation at Reaseheath but it may have only been Chetwood and it has the most loudest alarm system so if the building gets broken into you will know. But the rooms are nice (the one I went in anyway) she had an en-suite which was fairly sized, her bedroom was also a decent size. The kitchen which I went into had a lovely view outside. Overall it does seem decent.

    ah I've got a few questions!
    does reaseheath do a freshers week like chester will, or is it worth travelling to chester campus for it?
    what is reaseheath accommodation like? or is it worth finding off-campus accommodation?
    as it's a FE campus as well, do you see a lot of the younger students or does it feel like a proper uni?


    I'm hoping more people reply to this thread, I was thinking of making a facebook group for the course.

    I was going to find accommodation off campus, but I've been told by many it is worth staying onsite in the accommodation just for the experience alone and its a great way to meet new friends and people.

    FB page is a great idea but someone said about making it after results day but does it matter as they can still join after they get their results anyway so i dont think it makes a difference

    Anyone good at making FB pages or knows how as im not good with things like that.

    The alarm system kept going off when I went to look around the accommodation aswell! I wonder if we were there at the same time or if it's a regular thing that it goes off haha

    I think it may be a regular thing as my friend went to the most recent open day and it went off, but how strange would that have been if we had been there on the same day? I think I visited last year some time ... x
